:/ I read that too, but I'm not looking for the mystery HM or the round leaved baby tears. Apparently there is a plant that goes under Hermianthus Glomeratus which is a narrower leaved species which will grow to a bush.
The photos on APC are certainly not of the round leaved giant baby tears many of us have now. :O The misnaming and whatever seems to have made it very confusing to ID 3 different plant species.

The narrow leaf is not an emmersed form either as i have round leaved giant baby tears growing emmersed as well. It does not branch and only sends out single side shoots when cut.
